AllMusic Review by

Necroblaspheme have to be given credit for persisting after a promising career start hit the skids when the record label they initially signed to collapsed after the release of their formal debut in 2002. That said, while Destination: Nulle Part is clearly the work of a group that doesn't take things lying down, the flip side is that Necroblaspheme do very little with the approach that they clearly love -- classic thrash/death metal, more mechanistically rigorous than some groups but ultimately not as distinct as such a group should be. Destination: Nulle Part isn't without its positive sides -- the epic soloing on "After All" and the slow march break on "2 h 40 am" deserve mention, and there are other similar moments throughout the album. But moments don't make an album on their own, and otherwise much of the release shows Necroblaspheme are accomplished but ultimately derivative performers.
